Doctors Certified Baby Dead But Mum Realized She’s Still Alive at Funeral (Photos)
The grieving mum of a baby who ‘died’ at seven months realized the tot was still alive at her
Keilin Johanna Ortiz Montoya was declared dead by doctors at a hospital in Villanueva, Honduras, on August 6.
She had been admitted three days earlier with convulsions, diarrhea, severe hydration and blistered skin caused by a bacterial infection.
Despite intensive treatment at the hospital’s pediatric unit, the baby ‘died’ and and a death certificate was reportedly issued.
Her tiny body was released to devastated mum Ivis Montoya, who took her baby home in her arms for a candlelight vigil.
After the gathering, Keilin was taken to a church in nearby Dos Caminos for a funeral.
Ivis said her daughter’s body was placed on a chair in the church because “we had no money for a coffin”.
It was at this point the mother noticed her daughter was still breathing.
Reluctant to return to the hospital that had declared her baby dead, she rushed to a local clinic.
Here, medical staff administered the baby with some medicine and a woman’s support group persuaded her to take the baby back to the paediatric unit.
Keilin was immediately taken to the intensive care unit where she is said to be in a serious condition.
The head of the hospital’s paediatric department, Elba Campos, has now said the incident is being investigated.
